Here is my best explanation:

'intelligence' is the definition.
(wit is a kind of intelligence)

'it is to the point' is the wordplay.
'is to' means one lot of letters go next to another (I've seen this in other clues).
'the point' becomes 'w' (W is an example**).
'it' after 'w' is 'WIT'.

'showing' acts as a link.
